There ia one man in New York for
whom the month of May brings no
dread of the ( annual flight before the
grasping hand of the landlord. When
the advent of spring turns the thoughts
of thousands to the horrors of moving
day, Mr. and Mrs. M. W. Hall are se
renely indifferent When the first
warm days of summer set other people
to dreaming elf aalt water and ocean
breetea off Cape Cod or the coast of
Maine, Mr. Hall miles in the superior
sort of way befitting that Indifference
to hotel bills which is the envy of all
his fnends, while Mrs. Ilall gives un
distractedl attention to planning the
most fetching of summer costumes.
Wlien winter come and a trip, to Flor
ida or the Gulf seems a rquch to be de
sired end, they don't even stop to pack
their trunk; they Just go, - For Mr.
Hull is the fortunate owner of the odd'
est and most unique craft known to
Kew York waters, the cruijing house
boat, "Oatka." -
So far as is known, it is the onlv
vessel of its' kind in the world. Forty-
seven feet long, with a 16-foot beam,
and drawing only 8 1 2 Ifeet of water,
the "Oatka," is, in effect, a sea going
flat, by the whim of the owner set afloat
on the waves. She is built double and
heavily timbered throughout, with a
yachting keel that enables her to cut
the water easily and make sharp tucks
without upsetting, and the crew con
sists of just, two people hep owner
a captain and hi wife as first mate.
There was a time when the Halls, like
their unfortunate friends, cringed be
fore the landlord and the janitor of a
Harlem apartment house) but being
made of more heroio stuff than their
neighbors, they at last rebelled, and
Mr. Hall, who Is a marine engineer, as
sumed the prerogatives of marine
architect aa well and designed the craft
which now enable, him to greet his
erstwhile oppressors with a grin,
Until the last few davs the purvey
ors of fancy '-drink along the Great
White, Way have not been overanxious
about the delayed ait lval of - spring;

for the annual importation ' df limes
from the West Indies haa been delayed
also, and without them it would have
been impossible to meet the usual warm
weather demand for gin-flu, lime lem
onade, gin-rickeys and kindred bever
ages. The limes are here, now, how
ever, 2,000.000 of them. Thev came
in one day last week, inspiring pleas
ant visions of themselves graceful
afloat in tall slender glasses, where lit.
tie chunks of ice clink , merrily; and
with them came the hope that spring
would come at last to a waiting city,
and for a brief season banish hot drinks
and winter overcoats.
